Despite a flying start, Ferrari has run into serious reliability issues in the last few races, with neither driver able to finish in Baku.
Leclerc has taken four consecutive pole positions since Miami, but this streak will come to an end in Canada as even if he tops qualifying he won’t be awarded the pole position. *More sobbing Matt noises*
Carlos Sainz has arrived in Canada with a new V6 engine in his Ferrari but as this is within his allocation for the season, he will not receive a penalty.
Where do you think Leclerc and Ferrari can recover to on Sunday?
